In 1975, U. S. Judge George Boldt ruled that treaty Indians in Washington are entitled to half the harvestable catch of salmon and steelhead. This decision has had wide-reaching effects both emotionally and economically. First the views of those most affected by the decision--commercial, sports and Indian fishermen, and those in related industries--are presented. Finally a studio discussion is shown with representatives from state fisheries, the court and Indian and non-Indian fishermen.
